How is Madonna celebrating her 60th birthday?

Madonna has decided to mark her 60th birthday with a fundraiser for Malawi.

The Papa Don’t Preach hitmaker has joined forces with Facebook for the fundraiser, which is due to run from Monday through until August 31.

She explained: "I have an unwavering commitment to providing vulnerable children with a loving home. For my birthday, I can think of no better gift than connecting my global family with this beautiful country and the children who need our help most.

"Every dollar raised will go directly to meals, schools, uniforms and healthcare. I want to come together with my friends, fans and supporters to change the lives of Malawian children and let them know they are nurtured, protected and loved."

Fans of the chart-topping singer will be able to donate to the cause through Madonna's Facebook page or they can start their own fundraiser on Facebook to raise money.

It's been announced that all of the proceeds will benefit her Raising Malawi foundation, with the global payments company Ripple promising to match all of the donations.

Madonna's four youngest children are all adopted from Malawi and in 2006, she decided to create her own foundation in a bid to combat the poverty suffered by the country's population of child orphans.
